English Caption: 

Stanford University professor Brian Kobilka places a sample in the micro X-ray beam at the GM/CA beamline at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. The micro X-ray beam was used to conduct nearly all of the X-ray research that earned him and Duke University Professor Robert Lefkowitz a 2012 Nobel Prize. The beam enables the study of previously unusable protein crystals, which opens the door to new pharmaceutical research.
